NBC12 VIEWPOINT: Teacher Appreciation Week and Happy Mother’s Day!!

By: Kym Grinnage email

My message this week really makes me feel good!

Many of you may know that the week of 5/2 was National Teacher Appreciation Week. When we ponder for just a minute and think about someone who made a difference in our lives, we can always remember the name of a teacher who touched our soul. You may remember how they made you feel special, the extra tutoring, that note home to your parents or just a random act of kindness, but it was something special that made a difference in our lives.

When you look at all of the wonderful things we have created as human beings, we can thank a teacher for helping us to think and to care about what kind of world we wanted to create.

This year, it could not be a better bridge to what I consider to be one of the most important days of the year: Mother's Day!!!

One of the highest tributes we can give to the mothers in our lives is to simply say thank you!! Thank you for all of the sleepless nights, the hugs when we needed them, the scolding when we didn't want them, and most importantly for being the one who always believed in our dreams when no one else really understood! You are the ones who never give up on us!

Yes, that's what moms are made of. So to all of the mothers, grandmothers, mothers to be, and to anyone who has been like a mother to someone, Happy Mother's Day and thank you for being special in our lives.
